A man suspected of shining a laser pen at an aircraft was one of 23 people arrested in Brent as part of the Met’s latest London-wide day of action.
More than 4,800 officers carried out a series of initiatives across the city in Operation Big Wing which targeted seven key crimes in London.
Four suspected robbers were part of the arrests in the borough and others were held in suspicion of carrying out a variety of crimes including violence, robbery, theft, burglary, and criminal damage.
Commander Steve Watson, who led the operation, said: “The impressive results from Operation Big Wing demonstrate our unwavering commitment to driving down crime and its generators in London.
“We are here to serve the public, and this activity will act as a warning to those intent on breaking the law and engaging in criminal activity that we will do everything we can to stop them, and wherever possible put them before the courts to make London safer for our communities.”
